To the editor:

We want to commend the voters in the Fairbanks No. 2 precinct (Golden Towers). It is so rewarding to see residents helping their blind neighbors vote, family and friends bringing people who are in wheelchairs or need assistance in walking and church friends helping people who are unable to read the ballot.

We wish the 600 registered voters in that precinct who did not vote valued their privilege of voting as highly as the people who have to make a real effort to cast a ballot.
